[ARCHIVED] 2016 City Street Project - October 6th Update


A Note – information on the upcoming activities with the project are subject to change due to weather or other factors that unexpectedly arise. This report is to give you a sense of what is planned for the near future for each part of the project, as adjustments sometime need to be made to address emergencies or for efficiency reasons.

Property Owners,
Things are starting to wind down on the project, but there is considerable work yet to be done.

Landscaping: Landscapers have been focusing on the initial stages of terrace restoration after the asphalt was applied last week. This is a process and it takes a bit of time from start to finish. Please remember that anything that comes in looking odd or incorrect, the contractor is required to repair it – and once the work is deemed complete, there is still a one-year warranty on the work so repairs and issues that arise will need to be addressed within that timeframe.

Paving: There is some thought that the surface layer of asphalt (top layer) could be applied next week, but we have not yet received confirmation from the contractor on this. Notifications will be distributed in advance of this if a date is determined.

Trees: Plans continue to come together on the methods for planting replacement trees that have come with the project. City staff will work to consider properties that had trees taken down adjacent to their properties and try to do as much as possible to keep the urban forest diverse while considering the property owners thoughts. One other thing to note is that properties that have lower-hanging electric or utility lines in front of their properties will be not be deemed good candidates for a new tree.

As always, all schedules and work plans are dependent on the weather conditions.

Thank you, as always, for your patience on this important public infrastructure project.
